Brothel Badge stock story in the box:
This badge is neither novelty nor joke! Brothel Inspector was an official office. No foolin’! This had to be the cushiest job this side of the Mississippi. Their adventures were decidedly more in the category of an “indoor sport”.
Each high quality Old West replica badge is crafted out of brass and steel. They are double-stamped then silver plated. Next, each Old West replica badge is individually hand finished for a unique antique look. Individual badge finishes may differ (lighter or darker) from image shown.
Size: approx. 3 1/8" H
Back: Vertical, light-duty bar style pin
What is on the back of the badge?
All of our western badges have a lightweight bar style pin that is attached vertically.
Can I get a discount by purchasing multiple badges?
Yes, we offer quantity discounts! Discounts are listed near the ADD TO CART button. You can mix and match badge styles to reach discount levels.
I'd like to request a special finish or plating. Is that possible?
No, all finishes/platings are done at the factory level and it is not possible for us to change it. We cannot make antique badges shiny or vise versa.
Can I customize any badge?
No, the way you see the badge in the picture is how the badge is and it cannot be changed. We do offer a line of badges that are blank for customization. These badges can be engraved with your personal text or images in the designated engraving areas only.
What is “Double-Stamped” Brass?
A badge that is stamped out of brass first has a mold or die created for each side of the design. Next a block of brass is placed between the molds and the design is "double stamped" simultaneously on both sides using many tons of pressure. This process pushes and presses the brass up and out to form the badge.
Why Brass instead of Pewter?
Brass is stronger and more durable than pewter. Brass is an alloy metal of copper and zinc. Pewter is an alloy metal of primarily tin. Tin is a relatively soft metal and because of this pewter can scratch and bend easily.
